The Edge Rules by Melanie Hooyena | Review & Giveaway

Being a bully isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Sixteen-year old Brianna had everything she wanted: money to ski all over the world, underlings to do her bidding, and parents who gave her every freedom—as long as she played by their rules. But when she’s busted shoplifting and assigned to the Chain Gang, she ditches her shallow ways and realizes being herself is easier than manipulating people.
Forced to partner with kids she’d never dream of befriending, including Xavier, a boy who makes her pulse go into hyperdrive, Brianna vows to be a better person. Breaking Old Brianna’s habits isn’t easy, but her infatuation with Xavier—someone her parents would never approve of—motivates her to keep trying.
Even when he convinces her to trade her swanky skis for a beat-up snowboard.
Brianna lets go of her need to control everything and finally starts to feel free—until her past threatens to jeopardize her first real chance at love. She discovers balancing on the edge is as challenging in life as it is in snowboarding, and when a new friend is in trouble, Brianna must decide between the superficial things that used to be her world and putting her friend’s safety before herself.

The Edge Rules (The Rules, #3)The Edge Rules by Melanie Hooyenga
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! The Edge Rules was my cup of tea . . . Or coffee. i'm not much of a tea drinker. A strong message in this book is definitely that appearance is vain if what's inside is not the same as what people see on the outside. At the start, it was very hard to actually like Brianna's character. That's rare. I have a hard time when it comes to NOT liking characters, never the other way around. Ms. Hooyenga did the impossible.

When I heard there would be a third installment to The Rules series, I was ecstatic! So, thank you ChapterxChapter Book Tours & Promotions for the chance to read an ARC.

Multi-award winning young adult author Melanie Hooyenga first started writing as a teenager and finds she still relates best to that age group. She has lived in Washington DC, Chicago, and Mexico, but has finally settled down in her home state of Michigan. When not at her day job as a Communications Director at a nonprofit, you can find Melanie attempting to wrangle her Miniature Schnauzer Owen and playing every sport imaginable with her husband Jeremy.
